Looks like an early model Terminator endoskeleton seen from behind.

Yep - not to mention maintains thousands of linked up satellites in orbit - a sky net if you will...

Does it bother anyone else that so many people still use Block 4 images when talking about upcoming FH launches?

Yeah, but in this case I think they were looking for a picture taken at night.

TLDR (thread): So the "Coastal Steel" company apparently closed in the past, and it looks like the entire facility is in fact SpaceX.

Also: nasa tv live on Dragon departure (leaving in 10 minutes).

Because of:

Going on strike as rudimentary knowledge outside of google search of content is required. 
Doctors, pilots, nurses and air traffic controllers join me for some confusing reason.

I'm confused, why would anyone bother covering this up?

Hazarding a guess, they might call it "Coastal Steel" internally (using the old name happens all the time, see: Willis Tower/Sears Tower?) and the security there was told "don't talk to strangers". It seems like there's a bunch of secrecy but they really just haven't made any statements clarifying the whole mess.

It likes ta move it move it... :cool:

 

But apparently this is not the engine we’re looking for. :/ A few more tidbits in the article, but nothing groundbreaking. Except the possible groundbreaking for a landing pad at 39A. :cool:

Still waiting to hear if they found the cause of the RUD yet. All we know, per an earlier tweet, is that it happened after the SuperDraco system was activated (not fired). Presumably that means when the system was pressurized, and apparently something ruptured. But what?

I think Scott Manley did a video on that and it looks like the explosion starts above one of the SuperDraco pods.

My guess is a faulty piece of plumbing right where it connects to the engines.
